Pleasant Point Yacht Club

logo_pleasant point yacht club

Pleasant Point Yacht Club (PPYC) is a friendly, informal family club where sailing is fun!

Pleasant Point Yacht Club was founded in 1921 at Pleasant Point Domain as it was then called, now South New Brighton Park. It moved across the Avon River in 1929 to establish a base beside the South New Brighton Bridge on what was to become known as Rat Island Reserve.

It operated from this reserve until the 4th of September 2010 earthquake, which destroyed the buildings and the land. The Club established a new base in the South New Brighton Park in the winter of 2013, opening for our first season at the new location in September 2013.

After working out of five containers for 6 years, the Club finally opened our new clubhouse and changing room/toilet blocks in September 2019. Then in 2020 a new boat storage shed was built to give safe, secure storage to members’ yachts and the Club’s patrol boat fleet. The new Club house is surrounded by expansive decks with views out over the Christchurch Estuary. The boat shed has a large concrete rigging and wash-down area and there are two wide concrete launching ramps.

The Club is now back to pre-quake facility levels, except that they are all brand new with all the modern conveniences you would expect today. 

In early 2021 the Club hosted the Burnsco Sunburst National championships and a month later we celebrated the Club’s Centenary. The Club’s philosophy is summed up in our Mission Statement:

Our mission is to provide a safe, welcoming and friendly environment for anyone to participate in the enjoyment of sailing.
